Once upon a time there was a pump.
This pump pumped shit.
Shit that was made in various places somewhere the pump was not.
On the pressurized shit side was a field.
This field distributed the shit so it wouldn’t pile up.
Piled up shit is not good.
One day the shit makers discovered the shit pump continuously running.
The shit pump ran and ran and ran.
The shitters turned the shit pump off.
Now what? the shitters thought.
Shit began to pile up on the unpressured side.
Shit on shit.
A malodorous thing also started.
Shitting got to be a bad thing.
Uncomfortable, to say the least.
The head shitter thought he had tried everything to get shit pumping again.
He called people, got people to come look at his shit.
Still, shit piled up on the non pressured side and
It began to cause pressure.
Try something! the shitters said to the head shitter.
He looked at the shit pump with new eyes. Maybe priming the shit pump again…
The head shitter went through another possibly fruitless maneuver.
Priming the shit pump again.
But… this time was different.
This time the shit pump made a different sound.
Like really pumping shit.
